After smashing and writing off my car on March 21, I naturally needed a replacement. Because I am 79 years of age, live in a small community 70 kms north of Melbourne, and have debilitating spinal problems, I have trouble driving more than about 50 kms at a time. Consequently, I didn’t want to have to drive around Melbourne’s used car yards and private sellers searching for a replacement vehicle.
So I searched the internet hoping to find someone that does the searching and purchasing on your behalf. I soon came across Richard’s website “My Next Car Buying Advocacy”and rang him for a chat. I instantly established a rapport with Richard and consequently hired him to find a suitable set of wheels for me. With Richard’s prudent input, we worked out what kind of car I really needed as my replacement vehicle, what kind of extra’s I wanted, what I wanted to pay, and what Richard’s fees would be.
Within a week Richard came up with three initial contenders for me to choose from. He suggested I have a close look at one of them, a Ford Mondeo station wagon, “that is in immaculate condition.” He was dead right; the car is in showroom condition and has very few kilometres on the clock for a 2015 model. I jumped at the price Richard had negotiated for this car.
Richard not only found the right car for me and negotiated the purchase price, he also arranged a mechanical inspection for the required Road Worthy Certificate. He also filled out the change of ownership papers, registration transfer, etc. All I needed to do was inspect and approve of the car, supply the previous owner with a bank cheque, and drive the car home.
I couldn’t be happier with my new wheels. I can’t believe how well kept the car is. It is spotlessly clean and unmarked inside and out and the Duco is faultless. The car had been fully serviced just before I bought it and it even had new tyres fitted!
And I couldn’t be happier with Richard’s service. He definitely knows his cars, is very professional, friendly, and he obviously enjoys his job of finding the right car for his clients’ needs. And his fee is really reasonable.
I really enjoyed my dealings with Richard and the services of My Next Car Buying Advocacy. I would unhesitatingly recommend him to anyone looking for a new or used car.
